SCHOOL-AGE DAY CAMP 

(COMPLETED KINDERGARTEN - 12 YEARS OLD)
For parents and caregivers looking to keep their children’s minds and bodies active, the Wolf Creek YMCA’s Day Camp program, provides youth an adventurous, active, and healthy summer. 

Camp programs provide a fun and unique experience that gives children the opportunity to explore the outdoors, meet new friends, discover new interests and create memories that last a lifetime. Camp offers achievement activities such as, swimming, fishing, canoeing, ropes course, archery, arts, sciences, sports, reading and hands on activities like Y Readers that help close the gap of summer learning loss. 

Campers will learn how to be responsible and resourceful, work in groups, solve problems and make decisions that will help them grow as individuals all while having fun and feeling like they belong. We want every camper to start school telling friends that they had the best summer ever. Whether your child attends one week or the whole summer they will have an unforgettable experience at camp. 

Our staff is committed to nurturing the potential of youth. They are dedicated to give youth an enriching, safe experience while modeling positive values that help build your children’s characters.
